A portion of the scenic Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park will be closed for a part of September for continued pavement preservation. The road opened on June 21 this season, but was closed for the first three weeks of the month for the pavement preservation project. Access to Logan Pass will still be available via the east side of the road.

A section of Glacier National Park's iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road will soon close for maintenance.

Park officials said earlier this summer that Going-to-the-Sun Road is expected to close day and night from Sept. 16-29.

The closure is for the west side of the road between Avalanche Creek and Logan Pass. Visitors can still access Logan Pass from the St. Mary entrance.

Pavement preservation crews have been at work across Glacier for most of the season. Their work on Going-to-the-Sun Road will not only close the scenic highway, but is expected to cause delays. Travelers are asked to plan accordingly.

Going-to-the-Sun Road opened in 1929 between West Glacier and Logan Pass. The Facebook post states nearly 14,000 vehicles made the journey to the top that first year.
